Obama Dismisses Veep Seat

Barack Obama likes it on top. That’s what he said today in Wyoming, where he dismissed opponent Hillary Clinton‘s suggestions that she lead them into the White House:

Obama was asked by a television reporter, “Can you ever see yourself on the same ticket as Sen. Clinton?”

And the freshman Illinois senator replied: “Well, you know, I think it’s premature. You won’t see me as a vice presidential candidate — you know, I’m running for president. We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and I think we can maintain our delegate count.”

Obama may be right. While it’s too early to call, early exit polls show he’s leading Clinton in today’s Wyoming caucuses.
